You Can Never Deteriorate

You—in your true selfhood as divine Life's expression—will never deteriorate. Man, Life's creation, is no more open to decline and disintegration than is immortal Life.

No matter how persuaded one may be that his health and wellbeing are declining, this can never be true of his actual being. All that can deteriorate and fade out is the false sense of man as corporeal. The deterioration of misconceptions of real being is inevitable, for they never had any validity. Christian Science quickens the disappearing of misconceptions in individual experience. It explains how we can rouse ourselves from the stupor of believing we live in a physical framework and a material universe to the realization of man's infinite being as Life's idea. Though the awakening seems to be a progressive process, this does not justify a moment's delay in our beginning to awaken.
